Titusville Detective Tyler Wright said that back in February, police were notified of suspicious activities at the TD Bank at 201 Cheney Highway and the Wells Fargo Bank at 802 in Titusville.

Wright said that at both locations on Feb. 12, a white man wearing a blue shirt, dark colored pants and sunglasses entered both banks and sat in the waiting area for about 20 minutes.

The suspect then entered the public restrooms at the banks and emerged shortly thereafter before leaving.

According to Wright, the unknown man did not complete any transactions at either of the banks.

Wright said the man is a person of interest in a criminal investigation regarding extortion and police are asking for the public’s help to identify him.

Apparently the suspect left threatening notes in the bank bathrooms, warning of specific acts of violence to the public’s safety if his demands for money were not met.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call the Titusville Police Department  at 321-264-7800, or Detective Wright at 321-264-7811. They may also call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477) and remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward.
